Open Quote My children couldn't get a better education. The teachers and the administration at the high school have been committed to excellence and making sure my children are prepared for any college. My son graduated last year and quite frankly his classes in college are easier than his classes at Moon. Close Quote

Open Quote The senior project requirements are much harder than the better-ranking schools around here. Yet college students who took multiple AP classes (2+) in senior year still say that Moon did not prepare them well for college. Many teachers are not good teachers at all. The school lunches are mediocre. Taxes are way too high for a terrible school like Moon. The rules are rather strict. The anti-bullying program is ineffective. (I feel like I am ranting about Chrysler's reliability here, so many negatives.) Believe me, all this hype that Moon makes about itself is really just a trap that naive parents and students believe in. Go to a different district, even if the taxes are higher. They'll be well worth it. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
